I moved to the United States from Puerto Rico when I was 4 years old. I started playing baseball at very young age and continued playing until high school. After feeling “burned out” from the sport, I decided to put it aside and just focus on academics. At this point, going from a very active lifestyle to a completely non-active one, the weight started to build up. Heading to college just made things that much worse. Since eating healthy seems to be pretty expensive, many college students eat what they can, thus my case. This continued the weight gain.
It finally set in after a group of friends and I decided to take a little vacation in Nov 2011 to the Bahamas. Reviewing pictures afterwards, I noticed that that my weight had gotten to an all time high and I had to do something about it.
Single and 26, I set my goal to drop 100 pounds from the time we got back from the Bahamas in Nov 2011 until the next trip which was the following March 2012. I had a total of 4 months to try to reach this goal. I began by walking 45 minutes a day until I reached the point where I could jog the entire 45 minutes.
The Saturday before the trip came and weigh-in also came. I was super excited to see that I reached my goal and had lost a 101! It took tons of hard word but I reached my goal.
I am currently at a total of 160 pounds!
My passion in life is to show others that their impossible is POSSIBLE. Just takes lots of Drive. Dedication. Determination. DISCIPLINE!
